The Passover Project
The Passover Project's Mission is to give every believer the tools you need to celebrate and honor the Feast of Passover in your home or church.
Please consider partnering with The Passover Project this year by celebrating this appointed time with God.
The Passover Project is a partnership between Friendship Church in Frisco, TX and Morgan Sugg of MorganSugg.com.
What is the Passover Feast?
In the Torah, God set in place Times for His people to meet with Him. These times or feasts (MOADIMS) are statutes of the LORD for all his people. Passover is an appointed time to meet with & worship Him.
God set up 8 appointed times (listed Below). Passover commemorates the strong hand of God delivering the Israelite people from the bondage of slavery in Egypt.
As believers in Jesus Our Messiah, we also honor the Passover. We remember our deliverance from the bondage of sin and death through Jesus, our Passover Lamb. Passover is a time for us to remember God's goodness and faithfulness and a special time to meet with Him!

Why celebrate Passover?
The question of why believers should honor Passover is one many people ask and one question you will get asked too.
The command to keep Passover was made to the Israelites by God, this meeting time was to be kept throughout all the generations. Passover is still kept today although a lamb sacrifice is not made because the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 70AD.
So, what does this mean for believers in Jesus?
We know that Jesus is the ultimate Passover Lamb and no sacrifice is required. The requirement to keep Passover does not extend to us but does not exclude us either.
As followers of Jesus, we do have the choice and opportunity to honor this appointed time God set in place. We celebrate Passover to remember the mighty acts of God and to remember the mighty act of Jesus on our behalf.
When you celebrate Passover, you partake in a symbolic act of remembrance and rejoicing.
When is Passover?
Passover is celebrated as an eight-day festival in the Spring, in the Hebrew month of Nissan from the 15th to the 22nd.
This means Passover is celebrated April 9th through 16th, 2020, but it is custom for the Jewish day to start in the evening so Passover begins April 8th in the evening.
It is customary to have your Passover Seder meal on one of the first two nights of Passover.
A great resource for Feast dates is HEBCAL and you can import the dates directly into your own calendar.
